Chinatown, Sydney
(2.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Sydney's Chinatown is the oldest and largest Chinatown in Australia. Some top-tier Chinese chefs moved to Sydney in the 1990s, making this district world-famous for its Asian cuisine. There are Asian shops and open-air markets selling everything from traditional Chinese medicinal herbs to jewelry, meat, fish, flowers, vegetables, books, electronics, and inexpensive souvenirs. Several movie theaters offer daily screenings of documentary and feature films produced in Asia. Asian art galleries, restaurants, karaoke bars, shopping malls, and small boutiques attract visitors from around the world. While you can visit the area on your own, there is so much to see here, many tourists opt to join an official tour. Use our Sydney holiday planner to visit Chinatown on your trip to Sydney, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • I enjoyed it here Lots of good food choices A really good vibe to the place and heaps to see I'd come back 
  • Great part of Sydney to explore. Beautiful food with wonderful service. Such large portions at such reasonable prices - we left more than we ate! 
  • It is the only area with restaurants, Oriental of course, opened at night, since in Sydney all close early, Max 9.30 pm. Here you will find different options for dinner until 4 am. Us us except several nights.
